Technonet is the protest form of the 1990s-picketing on the
information highways. For example, a fast-growing assortment of
men and women around the world are using the Internet (started by
the US military for information transfer and exchange that would
never be interfered with) to draw attention to a questionable
military project in Alaska. Now these Internetting, e-mailing,
faxing folks are blowing holes in the US Department of Defense
secrecy wall by using the government's own system. The
printed-word part of the protest started when Dennis Specht, an
anti-nuclear activist then living in Alaska, sent a news item to
NEXUS on the topic of HAARP-the High-frequency Active Auroral
Research Program. Then, an Alaskan political activist and science
researcher in Anchorage, Nick Begich, networked with Patrick and
Gael Crystal Flanagan, who are self-described "technomonks"
living in Sedona, Arizona, and was told to check out that same
Australian-based magazine. Begich was surprised to see an item
from his home town in NEXUS and immediately headed to the local
library to dig out the documents cited in the article.

That research led to articles and the book, Angels Don't Play
this HAARP: Advances in Tesla Technology, which is 230 pages of
detailed information on this intrusive project. This article will
only give highlights. Despite the amount of research (350
footnotes), at its heart it is a story about ordinary people who
took on an extraordinary challenge.

atmosphere with a focused and steerable electromagnetic beam. It
is an advanced model of an 'ionospheric heater'. (The ionosphere
is the electrically-charged sphere surrounding Earth's upper
atmosphere. It ranges between about 40 to 600 miles above Earth's

Put simply, the apparatus for HAARP is a reversal of a radio
telescope: antennas send out signals instead of receiving. HAARP
is the test run for a super-powerful radio wave beaming
technology that lifts areas of the ionosphere by focusing a beam
and heating those areas. Electromagnetic waves then bounce back
onto Earth and penetrate everything-living and dead. HAARP
publicity gives the impression that the High-frequency Active
Auroral Research Program is mainly an academic project with the
goal of changing the ionosphere to improve communications for our
own good. However, other US military documents put it more
clearly: HAARP aims to learn how to "exploit the ionosphere for
Department of Defense purposes". Communicating with submarines is
only one of those purposes.

Press releases and other information from the military on HAARP
continually downplay what it could do. Publicity documents insist
that the HAARP project is no different than other ionospheric
heaters operating safely throughout the world in places such as
Arecibo, Puerto Rico; Tromsx, Norway; and the former Soviet
Union. However, a 1990 government document indicates that the
radio frequency (RF) power zap will drive the ionosphere to
unnatural activities:

"...at the highest HF powers available in the West, the
instabilities commonly studied are approaching their maximum RF
energy dissipative capability, beyond which the plasma processes
will 'run away' until the next limiting factor is reached."

If the military, in cooperation with the University of Alaska,
Fairbanks, can show that this new ground-based "Star Wars"
technology is sound, they both win. The military has a relatively
inexpensive defence shield and the university can brag about the
most dramatic geophysical manipulation since atmospheric
explosions of nuclear bombs. After successful testing, they would
have the military megaprojects of the future and huge markets for
Alaska's North Slope natural gas.

Looking at the other patents which built on the work of a Texas
physicist named Bernard Eastlund, it becomes clearer how the
military intends to use the HAARP transmitter. It also makes
governmental denials less believable. The military knows how it
intends to use this technology, and has made it clear in their
documents. The military has deliberately misled the public
through sophisticated word games, deceit and outright

The military says the HAARP system could:

* give the military a tool to replace the electromagnetic pulse
effect of atmospheric thermonuclear devices (still considered a
viable option by the military through at least 1986);

* replace the huge Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) submarine
communication system operating in Michigan and Wisconsin with a
new and more compact technology;

* be used to replace the over-the-horizon radar system that was
once planned for the current location of HAARP, with a more
flexible and accurate system;

* provide a way to wipe out communications over an extremely
large area, while keeping the military's own communications
systems working;

* provide a wide-area Earth-penetrating tomography which, if
combined with the computing abilities of EMASS and Cray
computers, would make it possible to verify many parts of nuclear
nonproliferation and peace agreements;

* be a tool for geophysical probing to find oil, gas and mineral
deposits over a large area;

* be used to detect incoming low-level planes and cruise
missiles, making other technologies obsolete.

The above abilities seem like a good idea to all who believe in
sound national defence and to those concerned about cost-cutting.
However, the possible uses which the HAARP records do not
explain, and which can only be found in US Air Force, Army, Navy
and other federal agency records, are alarming. Moreover, effects
from the reckless use of these power levels in our natural
shield-the ionosphere-could be cataclysmic, according to some

Two Alaskans put it bluntly. A founder of the NO HAARP movement,
Clare Zickuhr, says: "The military is going to give the
ionosphere a big kick and see what happens."

The military failed to tell the public that they do not know what
exactly will happen, but a Penn State science article brags about
that uncertainty. Macho science? The HAARP project uses the
largest energy levels yet played with, by what Begich and Manning
call "the big boys with their new toys". It is an experiment on
the sky, and experiments are done to find out something not
already known. Independent scientists told Begich and Manning
that a HAARP-type 'skybuster' with its unforeseen effects could
be an act of global vandalism.

HAARP HISTORY The patents described below were the package of
ideas which were originally controlled by ARCO Power Technologies
Incorporated (APTI), a subsidiary of Atlantic Richfield Company,
one of the biggest oil companies in the world. APTI was the
contractor that built the HAARP facility. ARCO sold this
subsidiary, the patents and the second phase construction
contract to E-Systems in June 1994.

E-Systems is one of the biggest intelligence contractors in the
world, doing work for the CIA, defence intelligence organisations
and others. US$1.8 billion of their annual sales are to these
organisations, with $800 million for black projects-projects so
secret that even the United States Congress isn't told how the
money is being spent.

E-Systems was bought out by Raytheon which is one of the largest
defence contractors in the world. In 1994 Raytheon was listed as
number 42 on the "Fortune 500" list of companies. Raytheon has
thousands of patents, some of which will be valuable in the HAARP
project. Twelve patents are the backbone of the HAARP project,
and are now buried among the thousands of others held in the name
of Raytheon.

Bernard J. Eastlund's US Patent #4,686,605, "Method and Apparatus
for Altering a Region in the Earth's Atmosphere, Ionosphere
and/or Magnetosphere", was sealed for a year under a government
secrecy order.

The Eastlund ionospheric heater was different: the radio
frequency (RF) radiation was concentrated and focused to a point
in the ionosphere. This difference throws an unprecedented amount
of energy into the ionosphere. The Eastlund device would allow a
concentration of one watt per cubic centimetre, compared to
others only able to deliver about one millionth of one watt.

This huge difference could lift and change the ionosphere in the
ways necessary to create futuristic effects described in the
patent. According to the patent, the work of Nikola Tesla in the
early 1900s formed the basis of the research.

What would this technology be worth to ARCO, the owner of the
patents? They could make enormous profits by beaming electrical
power, without wires, from a powerhouse in the gas fields to the

For a time, HAARP researchers could not prove that this was one
of the intended uses for HAARP. In April 1995, however, Begich
found other patents, connected with a 'key personnel' list for
APTI. Some of these new APTI patents were indeed a wireless
system for sending electrical power.

Eastlund's patent said the technology can confuse or completely
disrupt airplanes' and missiles' sophisticated guidance systems.
Further, this ability to spray large areas of Earth with
electromagnetic waves of varying frequencies, and to control
changes in those waves, makes it possible to knock out
communications on land or sea as well as in the air. The patent

"Thus, this invention provides the ability to put unprecedented
amounts of power in the Earth's atmosphere at strategic locations
and to maintain the power injection level, particularly if random
pulsing is employed, in a manner far more precise and better
controlled than heretofore accomplished by the prior art,
particularly by detonation of nuclear devices of various yields
at various altitudes...

"...it is possible not only to interfere with third party
communications but to take advantage of one or more such beams to
carry out a communications network even though the rest of the
world's communications are disrupted. Put another way, what is
used to disrupt another's communications can be employed by one
knowledgeable of this invention as a communication network at the
same time.

"...large regions of the atmosphere could be lifted to an
unexpectedly high altitude so that missiles encounter unexpected
and unplanned drag forces with resultant destruction...

"Weather modification is possible by, for example, altering upper
atmosphere wind patterns by constructing one or more plumes of
atmospheric particles which will act as a lens or focusing
device. ...molecular modifications of the atmosphere can take
place so that positive environmental effects can be achieved.
Besides actually changing the molecular composition of an
atmospheric region, a particular molecule or molecules can be
chosen for increased presence. For example, ozone, nitrogen, etc.
concentrations in the atmosphere could be artificially

Begich found 11 other APTI patents. They told how to make
"Nuclear-sized Explosions without Radiation", power-beaming
systems, over-the-horizon radar, detection systems for missiles
carrying nuclear warheads, electromagnetic pulses previously
produced by thermonuclear weapons and other "Star Wars" tricks.
This cluster of patents underlay the HAARP weapon system.

Related research by Begich and Manning uncovered bizarre schemes.
For example, US Air Force documents revealed that a system had
been developed for manipulating and disrupting human mental
processes through pulsed radio-frequency radiation (the stuff of
HAARP) over large geographical areas. The most telling material
about this technology came from writings of Zbigniew Brzezinski
(former National Security Adviser to US President Carter) and J.
F. MacDonald (science adviser to US President Johnson and a
Professor of Geophysics at UCLA), as they wrote about use of
power-beaming transmitters for geophysical and environmental
warfare. The documents showed how these effects might be caused,
and the negative effects on human health and thinking.

The mental-disruption possibilities for HAARP are the most
disturbing. More than 40 pages of the book, with dozens of
footnotes, chronicle the work of Harvard professors, military
planners and scientists as they plan and test this use of the
electromagnetic technology. For example, one of the papers
describing this use was from the International Red Cross in
Geneva. It even gave the frequency ranges where these effects
could occur-the same ranges which HAARP is capable of

The following statement was made more than 25 years ago in a book
which Brzezinski wrote while a professor at Columbia University:

"Political strategists are tempted to exploit research on the
brain and human behaviour. Geophysicist Gordon J. F.
MacDonald-specialist in problems of warfare-says
accurately-timed, artificially-excited electronic strokes 'could
lead to a pattern of oscillations that produce relatively high
power levels over certain regions of the Earth... In this way,
one could develop a system that would seriously impair the brain
performance of very large populations in selected regions over an
extended period...' No matter how deeply disturbing the thought
of using the environment to manipulate behaviour for national
advantages, to some the technology permitting such use will very
probably develop within the next few decades."

In 1966, MacDonald was a member of the President's Science
Advisory Committee and later a member of the President's Council
on Environmental Quality. He published papers on the use of
environmental control technologies for military purposes. The
most profound comment he made as a geophysicist was:

"The key to geophysical warfare is the identification of
environmental instabilities to which the addition of a small
amount of energy would release vastly greater amounts of energy."

While yesterday's geophysicists predicted today's advances, are
HAARP program managers delivering on the vision? The
geophysicists recognised that adding energy to the environmental
soup could have large effects. However, humankind has already
added substantial amounts of electromagnetic energy into our
environment without understanding what might constitute critical
mass. The book by Begich and Manning raises questions. Have these
additions been without effect, or is there a cumulative amount
beyond which irreparable damage can be done? Is HAARP another
step in a journey from which we cannot turn back? Are we about to
embark on another energy experiment which unleashes another set
of demons from Pandora's box?

As early as 1970, Zbigniew Brzezinski predicted a "more
controlled and directed society" would gradually appear, linked
to technology. This society would be dominated by an elite group
which impresses voters by allegedly superior scientific know-how.
Angels Don't Play This HAARP further quotes Brzezinski:

"Unhindered by the restraints of traditional liberal values, this
elite would not hesitate to achieve its political ends by using
the latest modern techniques for influencing public behaviour and
keeping society under close surveillance and control. Technical
and scientific momentum would then feed on the situation it
exploits," Brzezinski predicted.

His forecasts proved accurate. Today, a number of new tools for
the "elite" are emerging, and the temptation to use them
increases steadily. The policies to permit the tools to be used
are already in place. How could the United States be changed, bit
by bit, into the predicted highly-controlled technosociety? Among
the 'stepping stones' Brzezinski expected were persisting social
crises and use of the mass media to gain the public's confidence.

In another document prepared by the government, the US Air Force

"The potential applications of artificial electromagnetic fields
are wide-ranging and can be used in many military or
quasi-military situations... Some of these potential uses include
dealing with terrorist groups, crowd control, controlling
breaches of security at military installations, and antipersonnel
techniques in tactical warfare. In all of these cases the EM
(electromagnetic) systems would be used to produce mild to severe
physiological disruption or perceptual distortion or
disorientation. In addition, the ability of individuals to
function could be degraded to such a point that they would be
combat-ineffective. Another advantage of electromagnetic systems
is that they can provide coverage over large areas with a single
system. They are silent, and countermeasures to them may be
difficult to develop... One last area where electromagnetic
radiation may prove of some value is in enhancing abilities of
individuals for anomalous phenomena."

Do these comments point to uses already somewhat developed? The
author of the government report refers to an earlier Air Force
document about the uses of radio-frequency radiation in combat
situations. (Here, Begich and Manning note that HAARP is the most
versatile and the largest radio-frequency radiation transmitter
in the world.)

The United States congressional record deals with the use of
HAARP for penetrating the Earth with signals bounced off the
ionosphere. These signals are used to look inside the planet to a
depth of many kilometres in order to locate underground
munitions, minerals and tunnels. For 1996 the US Senate has set
aside US$15 million to develop this ability alone:
Earth-penetrating tomography. The problem is that the frequency
needed for Earth-penetrating radiations is within the frequency
range most cited for disruption of human mental functions. It may
also have profound effects on migration patterns of fish and wild
animals which rely on an undisturbed energy field to find their

As if electromagnetic pulses in the sky and mental disruption
were not enough, Eastlund bragged that the super-powerful
ionospheric heater could control weather. Begich and Manning
brought to light government documents indicating that the
military has weather-control technology. When HAARP is eventually
built to its full power level, it could create weather effects
over entire hemispheres. If one government experiments with the
world's weather patterns, what is done in one place will impact
everyone else on the planet. Angels Don't Play This HAARP
explains a principle behind some of Nikola Tesla's
inventions-resonance-which affects planetary systems.

includes interviews with independent scientists such as Elizabeth
Rauscher. She has a Ph.D., a long and impressive career in
high-energy physics, and has been published in prestigious
science journals and books. Rauscher commented on HAARP: "You're
pumping tremendous energy into an extremely delicate molecular
configuration that comprises these multi-layers we call the
ionosphere." The ionosphere is prone to catalytic reactions, she
explained: if a small part is changed, a major change in the
ionosphere can happen.

In describing the ionosphere as a delicately balanced system, Dr
Rauscher shared her mental picture of it: a soap bubble-like
sphere surrounding Earth's atmosphere, with movements swirling
over the surface of the bubble. If a big enough hole is punched
through it, she predicts it could pop.

SLICING THE IONOSPHERE Physicist Daniel Winter, Ph.D., of
Waynesville, North Carolina, says HAARP high-frequency emissions
can couple with long wave (low frequency or ELF) pulses the Earth
grid uses to distribute information as vibrations to synchronise
dances of life in the biosphere. Dan terms this geomagnetic
action "Earth's information bloodstream", and says it is likely
that coupling of HAARP HF (high frequency) with natural ELF
(extremely low frequency) can cause unplanned, unsuspected

David Yarrow of Albany, New York, is a researcher with a
background in electronics. He described possible interactions of
HAARP radiations with the ionosphere and Earth's magnetic grid:

"HAARP will not burn 'holes' in the ionosphere. That is a
dangerous understatement of what HAARP's giant gigawatt beam will
do. Earth is spinning relative to thin electric shells of the
multilayer membrane of 'iono-spheres' that absorb and shield
Earth's surface from intense solar radiation, including charged
particle storms in solar winds erupting from the Sun. Earth's
axial spin means that HAARP-in a burst lasting more than a few
minutes-will slice through the ionosphere like a microwave knife.
This produces not a hole, but a long tear-an incision.

CRUDELY PLUCKING THE STRINGS "Second concept: As Earth rotates,
HAARP will slice across geomagnetic flux...a donut-shaped spool
of magnetic strings-like longitude meridians (on maps). HAARP may
not 'cut' these strings in Gaia's magnetic mantle, but will pulse
each thread with harsh, out-of-harmony high frequencies. These
noisy impulses will vibrate geomagnetic flux lines, sending
vibrations all through the geomagnetic web.

"The image comes to mind of a spider on its web. An insect lands,
and the web's vibrations alert the spider to possible prey. HAARP
will be a manmade microwave finger poking at the web, sending out
confusing signals, if not tearing holes in the threads.

"Effects of this interference with symphonies of Gaia's
geomagnetic harp are unknown, and I suspect barely thought of.
Even if thought of, the intent [of HAARP] is to learn to exploit
any effects, not to play in tune to global symphonies."

Among other researchers quoted is Paul Schaefer of Kansas City.
His degree is in electrical engineering and he spent four years
building nuclear weapons. "But most of the theories that we have
been taught by scientists to believe in seem to be falling
apart," he says. He talks about imbalances already caused by the
industrial and atomic age, especially by radiation of large
numbers of tiny, high-velocity particles "like very small
spinning tops" into our environment. The unnatural level of
motion of highly energetic particles in the atmosphere and in
radiation belts surrounding Earth is the villain in the weather
disruptions, according to this model which describes an Earth
discharging its buildup of heat, relieving stress and regaining a
balanced condition through earthquakes and volcanic action.

FEVERISH EARTH "One might compare the abnormal energetic state of
the Earth and its atmosphere to a car battery which has become
overcharged with the normal flow of energy jammed up, resulting
in hot spots, electrical arcing, physical cracks and general
turbulence as the pent-up energy tries to find some place to go."

In a second analogy, Schaefer says:

"Unless we desire the death of our planet, we must end the
production of unstable particles which are generating the Earth's
fever. A first priority to prevent this disaster would be to shut
down all nuclear power plants and end the testing of atomic
weapons, electronic warfare and 'Star Wars'."

Meanwhile, the military builds its biggest ionospheric heater
yet, to deliberately create more instabilities in a huge plasma
layer-the ionosphere-and to rev up the energy level of charged

ELECTRONIC RAIN FROM THE SKY The military has published papers
about electron precipitation from the magnetosphere (the outer
belts of charged particles which stream toward Earth's magnetic
poles) caused by manmade very-low-frequency electromagnetic

"These precipitated particles can produce secondary ionisation,
emit X-rays, and cause significant perturbation in the lower

Two Stanford University radio scientists offer evidence of what
technology can do to affect the sky by making waves on Earth.
They showed that very low frequency radio waves can vibrate the
magnetosphere and cause high-energy particles to cascade into the
Earth's atmosphere. By turning the signal on or off, they could
stop the flow of energetic particles.

WEATHER CONTROL Avalanches of energy dislodged by such radio
waves could hit us hard. Their work suggests that technicians
could control global weather by sending relatively small
'signals' into the Van Allen belts (radiation belts around
Earth). Thus Tesla's resonance effects can control enormous
energies by tiny triggering signals.

The Begich/Manning book asks whether that knowledge will be used
by war-oriented or biosphere-oriented scientists.

The military has had about 20 years to work on weather warfare
methods, which it euphemistically calls weather modification. For
example, rainmaking technology was taken for a few test rides in
Vietnam. The US Department of Defense sampled lightning and
hurricane manipulation studies in Project Skyfire and Project
Stormfury. And they looked at some complicated technologies that
would give big effects. Angels Don't Play This HAARP cites an
expert who says the military studied both lasers and chemicals
which they figured could damage the ozone layer over an enemy.
Looking at ways to cause earthquakes, as well as to detect them,
was part of the project named Prime Argus, decades ago. The money
for that came from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
(DARPA, now under the acronym ARPA).

In 1994 the US Air Force revealed its Spacecast 2020 master plan
which includes weather control. Scientists have experimented with
weather control since the 1940s, but Spacecast 2020 noted that
"using environmental modification techniques to destroy, damage
or injure another state [is] prohibited". Having said that, the
Air Force claimed that advances in technology "compels a
re-examination of this sensitive and potentially risky topic".

FORTY YEARS OF ZAPPING THE SKY? As far back as 1958, the chief
White House adviser on weather modification, Captain Howard T.
Orville, said the US defence department was studying "ways to
manipulate the charges of the Earth and sky and so affect the
weather by using an electronic beam to ionise or de-ionise the
atmosphere over a given area.

In 1966, Professor Gordon J. F. MacDonald was Associate Director
of the Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics at the
University of California, Los Angeles, was a member of the
President's Science Advisory Committee, and later a member of the
President's Council on Environmental Quality. He published papers
on the use of environmental control technologies for military
purposes. MacDonald made a revealing comment:

"The key to geophysical warfare is the identification of
environmental instabilities to which the addition of a small
amount of energy would release vastly greater amounts of energy."

World-recognised scientist MacDonald had a number of ideas for
using the environment as a weapon system and he contributed to
what was, at the time, the dream of a futurist. When he wrote his
chapter, "How to Wreck the Environment", for the book Unless
Peace Comes, he was not kidding around. In it he describes the
use of weather manipulation, climate modification, polar ice-cap
melting or destabilisation, ozone depletion techniques,
earthquake engineering, ocean wave control and brainwave
manipulation using the planet's energy fields. He also said that
these types of weapons would be developed and, when used, would
be virtually undetectable by their victims. Is HAARP that weapon?
The military's intention to do environmental engineering is

US Congress's subcommittee hearings on Oceans and International
Environment looked into military weather and climate modification
conducted in the early 1970s. "What emerged was an awesome
picture of far-ranging research and experimentation by the
Department of Defense into ways environmental tampering could be
used as a weapon," said another author cited in Angels Don't Play

The revealed secrets surprised legislators. Would an inquiry into
the state of the art of electromagnetic manipulation surprise
lawmakers today? They may find out that technologies developed
out of the HAARP experiments in Alaska could deliver on Gordon
MacDonald's vision, because leading-edge scientists are
describing global weather as not only air pressure and thermal
systems but also as an electrical system.

SMALL INPUT, BIG EFFECT HAARP zaps the ionosphere where it is
relatively unstable. A point to remember is that the ionosphere
is an active electrical shield protecting the planet from the
constant bombardment of high-energy particles from space. This
conducting plasma, along with Earth's magnetic field, traps the
electrical plasma of space and holds it back from going directly
to the Earth's surface, says Charles Yost of Dynamic Systems,
Leicester, North Carolina:

"If the ionosphere is greatly disturbed, the atmosphere below is
subsequently disturbed."

Another scientist interviewed said there is a super-powerful
electrical connection between the ionosphere and the part of the
atmosphere where our weather comes onstage: the lower atmosphere.

One manmade electrical effect-power-line harmonic
resonance-causes fallout of charged particles from the Van Allen
(radiation) belts, and the falling ions cause ice crystals (which
precipitate rain clouds).

What about HAARP? Energy blasted upward from an ionospheric
heater is not much compared to the total in the ionosphere, but
HAARP documents admit that thousandfold greater amounts of energy
can be released in the ionosphere than injected. As with
MacDonald's "key to geophysical warfare", "nonlinear" effects
(described in the literature about the ionospheric heater) mean
small input and large output.

Astrophysicist Adam Trombly told Manning that an acupuncture
model is one way to look at the possible effect of multi-gigawatt
pulsing of the ionosphere. If HAARP hits certain points, those
parts of the ionosphere could react in surprising ways.

Smaller ionospheric heaters such as the one at Arecibo are
underneath relatively placid regions of the ionosphere compared
to the dynamic movements nearer Earth's magnetic poles. That adds
another uncertainty to HAARP: the unpredictable and lively upper
atmosphere near the North Pole.

HAARP experimenters do not impress common-sense Alaskans such as
Barbara Zickuhr, who says: "They're like boys playing with a
sharp stick, finding a sleeping bear and poking it in the butt to
see what's going to happen."

electrical system is a fairly well-accepted model. However, those
experimenters who want to make unnatural power connections
between parts of this system might not be thinking of possible
consequences. Electrical motors and generators can be caused to
wobble when their circuits are affected. Could human activities
cause a significant change in a planet's electrical circuit or
electrical field? A paper in the respected journal Science deals
with manmade ionisation from radioactive material, but perhaps it
could also be studied with HAARP-type skybusters in mind:

"For example, while changes in the Earth's electric field
resulting from a solar flare modulating conductivity may have
only a barely detectable effect on meteorology, the situation may
be different in regard to electric field changes caused by
manmade ionisation..."

Meteorology, of course, is the study of the atmosphere and
weather. Ionisation is what happens when a higher level of power
is zapped into atoms and knocks electrons off the atoms. The
resulting charged particles are the stuff of HAARP. "One look at
the weather should tell us that we are on the wrong path," says
Paul Schaefer, commenting on HAARP-type technologies.

Angels Don't Play This HAARP: Advances in Tesla Technology is
about the military's plan to manipulate that which belongs to the
world: the ionosphere. The arrogance of the United States
Government in this is not without precedent. Atmospheric nuclear
tests had similar goals. More recently, China and France put
their people's money to destructive use in underground nuclear
tests. It was recently reported that the US Government spent US$3
trillion on its nuclear program since its beginnings in the
1940s. What new breakthroughs in life science could have been
made with all the money spent on death?

Begich, Manning, Roderick and others believe that democracies
need to be founded on openness rather than the secrecy which
surrounds so much military science. Knowledge used in developing
revolutionary weapons could be used for healing and helping
mankind. Because they are used in new weapons, discoveries are
classified and suppressed. When they do appear in the work of
other independent scientists, the new ideas are often frustrated
or ridiculed, while military research laboratories continue to
build their new machines for the killing fields.

However, the book by Manning and Begich gives hope that the
military-industrial-academic-bureaucratic Goliath can be affected
by the combined power of determined individuals and the
alternative press. Becoming informed is the first step to
